Remembering Daniel Pearl

Wednesday, February 01, 2012

Ten years ago this week, Wall Street Journal South Asia bureau chief Daniel Pearl was abducted and killed by Pakistani militants. His grisly murder shocked the world, heralding the end of innocence for many foreign correspondents. It also became a rallying cry for those supporting the war on terror as well as those in Afghanistan and Iraq. But for those who actually knew Pearl, it was something else entirely.

Asra Nomani was a colleague and close friend of the late Daniel Pearl. She is the co-author of “The Truth Left Behind: Inside the Kidnapping and Murder of Daniel Pearl.”

That "denial" extends to this discussion which does not mention that Pearl was also targeted for his religious faith and the brutal nature of his demise.
